Students take the lead!

The McNair student team has teamed up with the district food service department to help promote Harvest of the Month. Each month a new, locally purchased food is served in the cafeteria. Students who bring their own lunch are offered a taste test. The district dietitian prepares a tasty dish and offers recipes for the students to take home. Students vote on whether they like the new dish. If the the dish is favored by the students, it will be incorporated into the menu rotation. The FUTP 60 team has practically taken over the marketing! Each month the students create informational posters, make morning announcements to remind the student body to participate, and even help with the distribution of the of the taste test samples. The students love their leadership role.
